I'm sure you regular C500 watchers have seen this one, but I just tripped over it...

Linky---> **Link Removed** <--- Linky



I have a feeling that this one doesn't come with all it's take-off parts.  Undecided
I dunno, I guess it could be worse.

Oh & nice VIN tag too. Roll Eyes

Before I shoot myself in the foot too badly here, let me say that yes, I am a fan of resto-modding & that this car probably really handles & drives great with it's cool upgrades...however, they should have left this car...a Charger 500...alone & done this to some other, lesser valueable Charger.


Lastly, THAT EXHAUST SYSTEM IS AWESOME!!! drool5

iagree and thats why i bought a 318 nothing fancy car to mod.  I'd much rather see that car stock or really close.  Don't get me wrong, the car is sexy but its a damn shame to do a 500 like that.

I just saw pics of that car somewhere, but I forget where. It's not bad, I kind of like the bigger wheels with the lighter color too. I almost agree about modifying a rare car, with not being the best choice, but it's not like he cut the rear window out & flared the wheel lips. The car is now more drivable, & probably much more enjoyable to sit behind the wheel knowing where it will go when steering & braking. I've had, & driven a bunch of B-Body cars, both with radials & bias-ply tires, & they aren't dream machines when it comes to handling.

If it weren't for the fact that this seems to be a genuine 1 of *less than 400* Chargers made like this, I couldn't agree with you more. I totally understand the idea of having an old musclecar with the handling capabilities of a more modern car...I dream of that nightly, if not weekly.
I just don't agree with doing it to such a rare car. Hell, make a C500 clone from a HELLPEG 318 car & do that to IT! icon_smile_big

I dunno...I guess, looking from the flip side of the coin, it's better to have it this way than to have it rotting in some putz's barn.

   I like those "wheel vintiques" wheels ALOT.   I agree on stock for this car.   I am not putting stock wheels on my 500 SE.   Galen said Road wheels or those "Bullit" hubcaps belonged on SEs...  
   Because of the following car I chose to go with the police wheels, redlines, and Hemi Caps.   I am thinking about going to stock steel wheels though (like this pic)...   What do you all suggest?   (Hemi cap idea is STAYING).   I like the contrast between the green and red:

It might be a rare car, but a modified one is rarer
I bet nearly all of the surviving 500s are stock, why worry about one

 Lose the wheels, replaces the spindles, rehang the springs and you have a pretty cool 500. Don't think anyone will fault him for the Hemi.

That car sure did see some $$ on the resto.  No fan of the wheels or lowering, but I bet it would be fun to arrive at a show and pop the hood.  Maybe the car was rough to start with and the original drivetrain was long gone???  Huh

At least it will probably get driven like this.  Not like the cars that can't even run because it might burn the NOS stickers off the exhaust.  Roll Eyes

I had that VIN number in my list of known 500's, however I didn't have any information on that car. I'll have to talk to someone at the Winged Warriors to see what all info they had on the car as in origional options. they mention its a factory A/C car but they installed an under dash a/c unit now. why not just leave the origional a/c switches in the car then?

I need to chime in here about this car. Key word, *car*. Thats all it is, rare, yes, but still a material item. The guy who modified it, did it by choice, not for factory correct resale value.
I agree with what you're saying.
It's us as humans that places such value on an inanimate object like this. The value of all Chargers, from 318 to 426 cars is all placed by us...one model is more valueable to one individual than it is to others.

I'm not completely pissed this guy did this...now if he made it a 4x4 General Lee C500, THEN I'd be pissed! icon_smile_big


DCG, did you figure it out? They usually look cleaner, this one's messy because of the arrows ---><---

  It SURELY is a DRIVER.  Imagine having a Aerodymanic body built for the track with a ELEPHANT in it, and disc brakes all-the-way-around!!!  That'd surely be a THRILL RIDE!!!

 iagree  Who wants a trailer queen?  With all the technology, I'm glad to see a "rare" car brought into the 21st century, if one day I'm ever lucky enough to own a hemi car, wing car, 6 pak, C500 or any desirable mopar that baby will be on the road, not one of these Orange-peel, paint daub, original air in my tires restoration, thats waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overboard.

Hey Charger Aficianado, are you still looking to get rid of your C500? If so I know of a person who would be interested in the car. Met up with him at St. Louis and he is still looking for a green Charger 500. I told him I"d ask you if your's was still on the market.

Also if anyone knows I've got a buddy who has a Green Charger 500 who is looking to trade it even up for a B5 Blue Charger 500. He has been looking for a Blue 500 for about 25 years now, so now he decided to try to trade the green one to get a blue one.

What? nobody wants a Dark Bronze one??  Cry  Ok i'll keep it then.

I know about a R4 Red 440 auto coming up for sale.  I tried to buy it when the guy pulled it out of the junk yard but he's gonna fix it up first then sell it so that means its outta my price range.

 Ya, I like those old vintage style wheels, here is one I saw in Olympia Washington about five years ago, like the paint job, sort of looks like a race car.

I agree,,, man, it's an even more rare C500 if it's a real one WITH air...  icon_smile_sad

I'm sorry, should have done it to a regular Charger....
